PHOTOS: Residents defy lockdown order in Lagos, Abuja


    Some residents of Abuja and Lagos have started flouting the directive to stay at home to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

    On March 29, President Muhammadu Buhari had ordered a 14-day lockdown in Ogun, Lagos and Abuja as a measure to check the pandemic.

    But some residents had been complaining about the effect of the lockdown, expressing their inability to meet their demands.
